I love twitter for so many reasons. To start, I have made so many fabulous friends. I truly make new friends daily, but I always come across the latest and great information on news, health, fitness, recipes, social media and more. I was so excited when Regan Jones from The Professional Palate posted a recipe for Blueberry Cobbler Bars inspired by her grandfather. I know Regan from her days at Cooking Light and Weight Watchers magazines when I was working at Southern Living. When I saw her tweet about her recipe, I told her I must try it with peaches. Well, it worked beautifully. These Peach Cobbler Bars are not only so easy, but out of this world.
Peach Cobbler Bars
2/3 cup light brown sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups chopped fresh peaches
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Coat an 8- x 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
2. Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and lemon zest. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg and mix just until blended. Pat two-thirds of dough into prepared pan. Bake at 400F for five minutes. Remove the pan and let cool 10 minutes. Turn oven down to 375F.
3. Combine remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, peaches and 1 tablespoon flour. Sprinkle evenly over crust; crumble remaining mixture over blueberries.
4. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees, or until top is lightly browned. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
